Salary database allows you to search and compare salaries.
In the Pro Database, you can search for salary data by occupation or by some other criteria, such as job location, number of employees in the organisation, etc.
In the Basic Database, you can search and compare salaries by occupation group.
The occupations are organised into occupation groups by level (e.g. managers, professionals, etc.) and into areas of work by content (e.g. finance and accounting; purchasing, sales and marketing, etc.). Each occupation belongs to one occupation group and one area of work.
The occupations are classified according to the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO). The number in brackets after each occupation is the ISCO code. The Agency has added more occupations to the list – these can be recognised by their 6-digit codes.
1. Select soruce data
Select whether you wish to see the salary information collected from employees (employee salary survey) or from organisations (organisation salary survey), or both together (employee and organisation salary survey).
Gross or net salaries
Select whether you would like to see salaries as gross or net figures.
Gross salary – salary figure before the deduction of income tax, unemployment insurance premium and the funded pension contribution.
Net salary – the employee’s take-home salary figure.
Salaries include basic salary and regular extra pay.
Select a criterion for searching and comparing salary information. You can select only one criterion at a time, which will appear on the x-axis of the results graph. You can specify your selection further in Step 3, after you have decided whether you would use any filters in Step 2.
2. Add filter
Filters help you specify your search further, either by occupation or by organisation- or employee-related background data.
If no filters are selected, the search will bring back the salaries of all participants in the relevant survey who fit the selected criterion.
Filters cannot be applied to the criterion you selected as a base for comparison.
NB! A minimum of 6 respondents must match your chosen criteria and filters in order for your search results to be returned as a graph or a table. Thus, the more filters you select at the start, the less choice of filters and criteria you will have at later stages. If you change any of the previously selected filters, all the other choices will change with it as the filtering follows the filter that was selected last.
3. Select criteria
Select up to 5 criteria to specify your search and comparison. The salary range, and the average and median salaries will be calculated for the relevant group based on your chosen criteria.
Applying the filters can limit the choice as the output graph and table will only be populated if a minimum of 6 respondents match the selected criteria.
Data displayed on the graph
On the graph, the column shows the range of the 1st and 3rd quartile, which represents the salaries of half the respondents, that is, 25% of salaries are below the lowest amount in the column and 25% above its highest amount. The lines mark the 10th and 90th percentiles, whereas 10% of salaries are higher than the top line and 10% lower than the bottom line.
Data displayed in the table
Statistical average – total sum of salaries divided by the number of respondents
Median – divides salaries listed by size in half, that is, 50% of salaries are higher and 50% lower than the median.
